Proxibid to Add Coin Home Page

Proxibidders and sellers received a message during the weekend of what promises to be innovative technological and safety changes to the online portal Proxibid. We’re eager to test the enhancements, especially one dedicated to numismatics! (Click to expand official news release.)

Among the changes announced by Ryan Downs, Proxibid president, is something Proxiblog has been requesting for some time now–a dedicated platform for coins and currency. We asked for this officially in a June 11 post, in which we made the case that a “‘Coins and Currency’ category, if feasible, would … spur competition, accommodate growth and benefit bidders, consignors and Proxibid.”

We applaud this forthcoming feature!

Downs also announced these other changes, including ones that enhance convenience and safety:

  1. One-stop registration for multiple auctions.
  2. Enhanced fraud safety measures.
  3. Redesigned Web site and new interactive features.

We also appreciate the forthcoming site that accomplishes the company’s new branding effort–and one that it deserves–as it works hard to bring top-quality customer service to bidders and sellers alike. The site will feature fixes and announcements for fraud protection and system issues.

Keep in mind that a redesign of this magnitude is certain to encounter technological glitches and occasional oversights. Proxiblog will analyze and report on the new features in a constructive way so as to help improve the service. We encourage our viewers to do the same as Proxibid appreciates the feedback and often responds to it … as it has with our call for a “Coins and Currency” page!

Proxiblog is an independent entity with no connection to the auction portal Proxibid. Our intent is to uphold basic numismatic standards as established by the American Numismatic Association and the National Auctioneer Association and to ensure a pleasurable bidding experience not only on Proxibid but also on similar portals such as iCollector and AuctionZip.

  1. I am realitivy new to bidding online, and recently I have been following the auctions as they occur. My ? is that there seems to be a trend as far as leaving a maximum bid prior to the start of the auctions, that in my opinion alot of the auctioneers seem to reach your maximum bid even when it appears there are no other competing bids. From my observation this seems to be common practice.What are your thoughts on this matter?
